In response to this awful piece erasing young feminists and claiming that feminism is “over the hill,” Shelby and I wrote to USA Today and asked them to get the real story. A bit of our letter to the editor:
Contrary to the article’s claims, we know our movement’s history, and we are carrying it into the future. We don’t just identify with feminism; we live it day to day. We fight for reproductive, economic, racial and social justice online, in the streets, and side by side with our friends and family members. We’re questioning, bending and breaking down social norms, including sexuality, gender, age, class and race. We are abortion clinic escorts, online organizers, rape crisis center volunteers, radical journalists and sometimes even presidents of NOW chapters.
Read the rest for yourself.
